Forum: classic_tv Subject: Is anyone else having trouble uploading?

I've tried 4 or so times to upload a partial episode of "The Martha Raye Show" (about 66% of the episode), and each time has resulted in a server error.

Sometimes these problems are due to the modem I use, so I am curious if anyone else has been having troubles.

I upload via ftp (using the program WinSCP). So if the upload is interrupted for whatever reason, I don't have to start over; the uploading can simply be resumed.

I had that same problem when uploading the series "Man With a Camera". I did what Moongleam said by resuming the upload.

Please forgive my ignorance, but how do I re-start a upload? What settings do I need to use?

Are you uploading the ordinary way, or are you uploading via ftp (using an ftp program)?

The ordinary way. Do you think I should switch to ftp?

(sorry that I am such an idiot)

(oh yeah, and I just tried again a couple hours ago and again it failed).

Yes. The beauty of the ftp method is that if you have uploaded 99 megabytes and then you lose your connection, you don't have to start back at square one; those 99 megabytes are still sitting there on the server. The next day (or whenever) when you connect again and re-start the file transfer, your ftp program will give you the option of starting from scratch or resuming. You will choose to resume, and the rest of the megabytes in the source file will be appended to the end of the file on the server.

You will need to install an ftp client on your computer. The free program WinSCP works well for me.

One thing you'll probably have to do before logging in with WinSCP is change the File Protocol to FTP (it may default to SFTP or SCP).
